Reasons To Sell Your Home In The Summer

Kim PhillipsReal Estate

Your Home Will Look It’s Best:

Summer in the Fraser Valley is truly a beautiful time of year. In the summer, the trees, flowers, and curb appeal is at its peak which in turn can increase the value of your home. Not only will this mean your showings will be more positive, the photos will also be at their best. If you take the time to trim, paint, and spruce up the outdoors of your home, you will maximize your home’s selling features and your sale. The summer is a great time to list your home!

More Families Are Moving:

There is a lot of stress with buying a home and moving during the school year. Your chances of selling your home in the Summer is much higher partly because young families prefer to move during the school break. Families want to get settled in their new neighbourhood before their children go back to school again in September. Most people also prefer moving from June-August when the weather is dry and days are longer – this makes for a less stressful and smoother move.

You’ll Likely Have More Time To Focus On The Move:

Not for all, but for many, the summer means more free time. You may be more able to take time off work, or have a reduced work schedule, allowing more time to focus on selling your home. With extra long weekends in the summer, you’ll have more time to spend on listing your home, talking to a Langley real estate team, considering offers, and putting in the time you need to get it done. This means that many buyers will also be on holiday time and will have time to look at your property.

It’s Easier To Renovate:

The summer is a great time to renovate and fix up your home. The weather is better, schedules are less busy, and the days are longer. Getting your house ready faster, means you will get the most value from your home, and possibly a quicker sale. Take the time to ensure everything is working perfectly, nothing is broken, dented, or scratched. By taking the time to make those repairs, your potential buyers will feel they are viewing a well-maintained home that is “move-in ready”. 

More People Are Outside:

There is nothing like an evening walk on a summer day. The longer days, and beautiful weather means there will be more people out and about for a walk, drive, or adventure. With more people exploring and walking through your neighbourhood, your home and your “for sale” sign will be more visible. The more exposure the better!

Summer Is Usually A Seller’s Market:

The summer is the busiest time of the year for the housing market, due to the reasons mentioned above. Joining the Real Estate Market during the summer will mean that your home is likely to get more views online, showings, and offers.  Ultimately, it’s a sellers market in the summer, and the best time to expect a quicker sale and get the most value out of your home.
